      Someone was telling me once how they lived in the town of Mayfield and had to take the
      mixed train to Gloversville to do their laundry.  I guess they graduated to a car after

      Hi All,
      I rode the mixed to Broadalbin a couple of times in the mid 1950s. On on occasion it stopped at a grade crossing some where in the deep Berkshire woods and picked up a lady who wanted to do her weekly shopping in Broadalbin. While the train crew retired to a local eatery for breakfast, she did her shopping. Eventually all returned to the train for the return trip. She was dropped off at her entry destination. I  often wonder how she managed after the train was abandoned.

      Hi All,

      I've just read Jim Shaughnessy's article in Classic train and am a bit
      shocked to learn 340 never carried passengers.. say it ain't so! Just a
      little surprised to read a passenger train ran on the line six times a
      day for twenty years and never carried passengers. What did the mixed
      to Broadalbin carry?

      Paul :-)
